LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas has reported 851 new cases of the coronavirus and 14 additional deaths. Meanwhile, the state’s total number of cases dropped Saturday from the day before after people who were tested in Arkansas but identified as residents of other states were removed. An Arkansas Department of Health official says the state recently contracted with a third-party vendor to clean up its coronavirus data. On Saturday, the state’s total number of cases since the start of the pandemic was listed as 51,992, a decrease of 400 from Friday.
